From Wikipedia:
"Cape Tribulation is a headland and locality in northern Queensland, Australia 110 km (68 miles) north of Cairns. It is located within the Daintree National Park and the Wet Tropics World Heritage area.
Cape Tribulation was named by British navigator Lt. James Cook on the 10th of June 1770 (log date) after his ship hit a reef as it passed over it, north east of the cape, at 6pm. This made Cook pull away from the coast, looking for deeper water. At 10.30pm, the Endeavour hit a reef almost sinking Cook's ship, on what is now named Endeavour Reef. Cook recorded "...the north point [was named] Cape Tribulation because here began all our troubles"."

From Wikipedia:

"The Daintree Rainforest is a tropical rainforest north of Mossman, Queensland, on the coast, north of Cairns in tropical far north of Australia. At around 1200 square kilometres the Daintree is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian mainland. Named after Richard Daintree, part of the forest is protected by the Daintree National Park and drained by the Daintree River.

The Daintree Rainforest contains 30% of frog, marsupial and reptile species in Australia, and 65% of Australia's bat and butterfly species. 18% of bird species in the country can be found in this area. There are also over 12000 species of insects. All of this diversity is contained within an area that takes up 0.2% of the landmass of Australia.

The Daintree is an outstanding example of the major stages in the Earth's evolutionary history, an example of significant ongoing ecological and biological processes, and an example of superlative natural phenomena. It contains important and significant habitats for conservation of biological diversity. The Daintree Rainforest is over one hundred and thirty-five million years old – the oldest in the world. Approximately 430 species of birds live among the trees. The primitive flowering plants Austrobaileya scandens and Idiospermum australiense are also endemic to the Daintree.

North of the Daintree River can be seen examples of tropical rainforest coming right down to the sea. The roads north of the Daintree River wind through areas of lush forest, and have been designed to minimize impacts on the forest."



Lieutenant James Cook climbed Grassy Hill to look out to the mouth of the Endeavour River to find a passage through the Great Barrier Reef.

I am suspending my other uploads to do this one. I am posting about 15 photo because this Sunday (11 th November) the ABC TV continues the Documentary on Captain Cook and it will begin this episode with his crashing on Endeavour Reef near Cooktown. Very recently I visited Cooktown and the Coloured sands (10 days ago) and want to share these photos on the Cook saga because it will fit nicely with the Documentary this Sunday evening.

For non-Australians, The east coast of Australia was discovered and mapped by Lieutenant James Cook in 1770 for the British authorities, and that led to British settlement in January 1788 when the United States colonies refused any more convicts so Britain sent them to Australia (New Holland) instead. Cook's ship carried about 100 men and was called the Endeavour, and James Cook was perhaps the most capable and expert captains the British navy ever had.

**** There is a lighthouse on Grassy Hill built in the 1880s I think. It is quite a quaint one. Lighthouses are not relevant these days because of GPS and satellite navigation.
